Method is a relatively new label on the market that primarily makes household cleaning products. Their children’s range – Method Kid – launched in July 2008 and consists of this body wash and the 3-in-1 shampoo. They’re made up of 99 per cent natural and plant derived products.
The packaging is very clever (if you look carefully it’s meant to be, I think, a cat…), no caps to unscrew or lift up but with a non-return valve that squirts the product out when you squeeze the plastic bottle (this does mean it’s hard to control and you do tend to use more than you’d planned to, but small complaint). My extremely crafty five year old daughter couldn’t manage to squeeze any out, although has great fun sticking her finger up the valve. So it seems to work; I love the simplicity of them. The smell isn’t overwhelming, but nice and fresh and the product offers good value for money. I recommend.
